A Summer Rain
It we had a break from the heat with a bit of summer rain. And after 3 days away, I had to do a bit of catching up. Actually my newest postage stamp quilt has come in bits of sprinkles, heavy downpours, and gentle drops. This is just one of three sections - too big to put all the rows in one area. But the rows are now ready to be sewn together. And it may take a few more rainy days to finish as I think I will add a border and then more rows of those bitty squares - yes, a big quilt, I do make them once in a while. *will link up with Patchwork Times*
Some Thank You's are in order - Chris of SewLux sent me the Salt Air charm pack and Birds & Berries pattern for the Scrap Attack prize. My SIL fell in love with this and just bought a circle cutter that will help. The Harvest Home pattern came from Kris at Lavender Quilts for her 400th post give away. I have to behave and get at least two/three quilts FMQ first before I play with this. The pretty Victorian greenery Mug Mat and Pincushion are from Debbie of Stitch' Therapy for quessing what pattern she was working on and the source. And the little bag of candies came with my new triple section wire table topper frame that I ordered from Shell of Raspberry Rabbits during her topper sale - can't show that as something is on it I can't show off yet. She always wraps her things so sweetly and adds those little tid-bits of goodies along. And a few 'just because' items have come my way - thank you ladies, you know who you are.
